About Prefrontal.org
As a young science professional I would be remiss not to have a presence on the web. One problem was that having a static page with only my address and CV just felt self-serving and sterile. Instead I wanted a home on the web where I could post interesting tidbits of information, practice my writing, and engage in scientific outreach to the public. This website was the result. It currently consists of a weblog (http://prefrontal.org/blog) to handle topical discussions and a wiki (http://prefrontal.org/wiki) to store readily accessible information.

In the time that prefrontal.org has been active I have been quite happy with its direction. My only frustration so far has been the relatively low amount of time I am able to dedicate to new content due to other obligations [read: being a postdoc].

About Craig Bennett
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I started off my undergraduate education in the Aerospace Engineering department at the University of Kansas, but quickly became disenchanted with the program. I was seeking purpose in my work, and designing airplane doors wasn’t providing it. I soon found a home in cognitive psychology, a field that sought to understand how information is processed in the brain.

    Wow, good point. I am not terribly concerned about the main page, but if you take the time to click to the About page you should know who is responsible for this mess. It will be rectified, thanks. ~ Craig

    […] Craig Bennett, did an interesting experiment with a dead salmon. He assessed the ability of the fish to identify emotions in photographs presented to him. Yes, you got it right. He used functional magnetic resonance imaging for measuring brain activity while he showed a dead fish photos of people in social situations and asked him (the salmon) to identify the emotions people were experiencing and he got results.
